Canticle 9 

The First Song of Isaiah 
Ecce, Deus 

Isaiah 12:2-6 

Surely, it is God who saves me; *
  I will trust in him and not be afraid. 
For the Lord is my stronghold and my sure defense, *
  and he will be my Savior. 
Therefore you shall draw water with rejoicing *
  from the springs of salvation. 
And on that day you shall say, *
  Give thanks to the Lord and call upon his Name; 
Make his deeds known among the peoples; *
  see that they remember that his Name is exalted. 
Sing praises of the Lord, for he has done great things, *
  and this is known in all the world. 
Cry aloud, inhabitants of Zion, ring out your joy, *
  for the great one in the midst of you is the Holy One of Israel. 

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: *
  as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
